See Hitchcock's The Birds On Outdoor Screen


Regent's Park Open Air Theatre is running a one-off screening of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds on 1 September. The 1960's classic sees a motley and rancorous flock of Californian avians targeting  Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor (Gregory Peck wasn't available).

The film, now 50 years old, is among the most famous by the Leytonstone-born director. The screening will be introduced by Tony Lee, author of The Making of Hitchcock's The Birds.

The outdoor screening runs through dusk when the park's birds should be in full song, adding an eerie fourth dimension to proceedings. Now, who's going to stage Jaws on a floating cinema in the Thames Estuary?

The Birds, Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, 1 September 2013, gates 6.45pm, film 8.15pm. £16.50/£14.50.

Why is it Bologna can do an open air cinema for free for a month showing great films.. and London charges west end cinema prices per film! Plus it'll probably rain and there'll be no chairs provided. OK rant over.
